I don´t know why I am surprised really, because we Arsenal fans should be used to disappointment in the summer and winter transfer markets. And to be honest I do not expect Arsene Wenger to continue this way. I am sure the Frenchman has plans and knows what he wants to do, but it is frustrating that we have yet top complete any of the transfers that Arsenal fans were hoping for.
I think there are good reasons for this, however. The one that seems most likely at the minute is Petr Cech from Chelsea and if we do get the Czech Republic star it will be a major coup. But we have had bad experiences trying to deal with Chelsea and Mourinho before, Demba Ba being a prime example.
Back then Mourinho said that he vetoed the move because we had signed Mesut Ozil and that made us serious rivals. So if Wenger went and signed a couple of top players now it would give Mourinho extra ammunition to convince Abramovich not to let us have their keeper.
I might be wrong but I have a feeling that Wenger is playing it cool until he sees the contract with Cech signed, sealed and delivered. Then I think that the Gunners will really kick into gear, transfer-wise, or at least I hope so. Do you think that the boss has it all under control or is he letting things get away from him again?
